Default Tips on overall shore fishing setup

Hey guys! I'm planning on really dedicating myself to stripers this year. I fish from shore in the Kingston area. In the past I have only used a single 9 foot medium heavy pole with 20 lb test. I am planning on getting two more setups, but what I would really appreciate some advice on is what line to use! I was thinking 80 lb. braid, and 40-60 lb flourocarbon as leader material. Am I on the right track? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Gino

My Braid set up is 50# Power Pro with 30# Seaguar. I think 40-60 is too heavy as a leader.

I'm gonna try the Power Pro Super Slick 40# this year.

How much easier does 30lb fluoro tie than the 40lb stuff? I have run different brands of 40lb fluoro leader and it's tough stuff to tie. Palomar knots won't even tighten up so there not an option. I use a traditional snell for hooks and that is a fairly easy (and pretty) knot. For swivels I tie a trilene knot. They come out great but they fight me the whole way!

I used to use the 50 lb leaders and they are just too much , 30 lb fluoro leader is more than enough, easy to snell, palomar no prob and just try n break it, tuff stuff

Running light line 25lb main line 20lb leader, anything more is overkill if ya ask me... Never run braid anymore, noticed a lot more pickup & drops when using it..

. My mono set up was 20lb and it never broke. Although I never caught a monster on it. Maybe the bit of stretch allows for a slight bit more time for a circle hook to grab up?

Same here ... 20 lb mono for the main line and leader and i have caught tons of fish and don't think my line ever failed.

Some years i don't even put new line on. As long as it is in decent shape and your drag works you will be fine,

30 lb flourocarbon leader and 20 pound test line is fine with 6/0 circle hook. if you are looking to have some fun. The reel needs to have a super smooth and reliable drag though or you will be breaking off. On the beach I run the shoreline with 17 pound and 40 lb leader. The less hardware the better!
Tight lines!!

I like to do the opposite from shore. Lighter leader than main line. That way if I get hung up I only lose my leader, not my entire rig

Shore or kayak. I use 30 or 40 lb Powerpro Superslick, and my leader material is 30 or 40 lb fluorocarbon (surf casting rod I use the heavier material).
